Waking Up with Three Unexplained Scratches on My Body

Updated on July 12, 2015

Team Wiseman has noticed that strange scratches in certain formations have appeared around the world and were the first to expose it!

This is something that happens all the time, but is rarely discussed. Thanks to the Internet, though, people who observe unusual occurrences, like waking up with three scratches somewhere on their bodies, are starting to talk to each other. And there are a lot of us, and we know the same thing is happening to all of us.

When I say it like that, it sounds crazy, right? Sure it does. It sounds crazy to me, even, and I'm the one writing about the phenomenon of unexplainable scratches appearing on human flesh.

"What does it mean?"

"Why is it happening?"

"Who else is it happening to?"

"Am I crazy, or is this real?"

"What can I do to stop this?"

These are the kinds of questions we are asking.

What are these mysterious scratches on my body?

What Do Unexplained Scratches Mean?

My research shows that these scratches usually come in threes, and appear on the back, arms, legs, and face. Along with scratches, people also experience mysterious bite marks and inexplicable bruising. They seem to appear at times in our lives when temptation is near or when we're facing a big decision.

These scratches have a distinct meaning: "destruction" or "destroy." Rather than going on and on, I'm going to share testimony from others who have been affected by strange scratches. You'll notice that this phenomenon doesn't restrict itself to one country, but rather has afflicted many around the world! You are not crazy, nor are you alone.

Most Recent Poll

Several months ago, I administered a poll about unexplained scratches and the response was fascinting.

Question: Have you ever experienced unexplained scratches, bruises, or bite marks?

  • 97% Yes
  • 3% No

These results are out of the 1047 people who voted, and this is just the beginning. Thousands of victims have turned to the Internet, searching for answers about the three unexplainable scratches appearing on their body, and I'm here to give you answers. Though other sites have tried to help, they all fall short of the Truth.

Personal Stories About Unexplained Scratches

These are real comments left by readers who have experiences scratches and other mysterious events:

"...I found this site via a search on paranormal scratches. I'm the victim of this phenomenon. This has been happening to me for the last 6 years. At first I thought it was just something odd or that maybe one of my cats scratched me and I didn't remember. I actually watched them form one night and had witnesses to the event. They were raised like welts and turned bloody. After about 3 days they completely disappeared. I've had them in places I can't reach which rules out self-infliction. I've had them on my face, neck, arms, legs, and back. Over the years I've almost gotten used to them. I was told that it might be a ghost in my house, but when I moved it kept happening. Also other people that have been close to me have been affected as well. I know this is bizarre and doesn't fit the norm, so I'm here in search of answers. I've been advised by someone who tried to help me that it may in fact be my own psychic doing. Let me explain. We all have a personal spiritual energy and there's a lot about the human mind we are only starting to understand. It's been suggested that I have certain powers or gifts that are making this happen. This power comes at a price, though. It's painful and has affected others I know. The bloody scratch marks eventually heal and disappear but nonetheless it's scary. I'm not saying that I'm some kind of warlock or anything like that. The reality is I don't know what's going on or how to deal with this. I could use some help. So I've chose the grassroots method and decided to find others like me. The person I'm currently talking to has been very helpful, but she is only one source of information. I would like to hear from others. Thanks."


"I wake up sometimes and I have scratches on my upper body, on the front and back of my right shoulder blade, and on my stomach on the right side. I don't inflict them on myself and I also do not have any animals. What do you think they are coming from?"


"On way too many occasions I have woken up with bad bruises on my body. I know that at work I often bump my arms and legs into things, but these bruises are on my torso. Unless someone pinched me or hit me, I can not figure out where I got them. On several occasions my husband has noticed bruising on my back and scratching on my back as if someone had just scratched me. They are not bleeding, but they are fresh. I have had dealings in the past with paranormal experiences where I have been pushed down a flight of stairs, or punched in the back. I call to the power of the Lord, Jesus Christ to rid me of these attacks. It usually works. But, the Devil just does not like to let go."


"The scratches, if not self-inflicted, are definitely demonic. There have been thousands of these afflictions in the past and 90% have demonic origin.

There is Biblical evidence of this, and it can be overcome. But don't go to a Catholic priest for prayer; they will just tie you up in religious jargon. Call a reputable evangelist."


"I am having these issues right now.

Yesterday I awoke with a large bruise on my forearm in the shape of a toothless human bite. The surrounding area is swollen, and I had 2 other people besides myself look for bug/spider bites(NONE)!

Today I have three scratches on the other forearm that became welt-like and burn. They are wider than cat scratches. Two of the scratches run straight up and down the forearm and the third sort of curves towards the other two. They are all about two to two-and-a-half inches long. I don't smoke dope (speed, meth, whatever you want to call it) or crack, no alcohol, no over-the-counter pills."


"I was awoken around 2:24am when my three-year-old son came running into my room screaming, "Get it away from me, get it away from me!" I opened my eyes as he climbed in bed between me and my wife. It was still dark in the room. I looked towards the foot of the bed. With GOD as my witness, clear as day, I saw a green face. I saw his eyes, nose, and mouth. His head was at the foot of the bed as if he was resting his chin on the bed. I screamed as loud as I could and reached for the light. By this time I was standing on my pillow against the headboard... The face disappeared when I turned the light on. I turned every light on in my home and searched every closet, under every bed, every square inch. I found nothing!

We live in a township called Huron believed to have been built on Indian burial grounds. I've been in the garage working underneath the car and have heard someone come in the door and close it and nobody was there at all. We have heard loud banging from the outside which shakes the house: not one or two bangs but six or seven in a row. Once I called the police and they searched the outer grounds. At the time there was four inches of snow on the ground and no one found a single footprint where the banging came from. I have since moved out of that house and my father continues to live there. He had three scratches on him last week. He also said he saw the green face in his room. I built a home on three acres on property right next door. Nothing has happened in my new home as we had it blessed. But my father says he hears a man talking almost every night. He has woken to the sound of water running and has had to shut it off. When he got sick and had to go to the hospital for surgery he was gone for seven days. I let his dogs out every day and fed them and spent time with them. THEY BOTH DIED for no reason the night before my dad was released from the hospital. The vet has no clue what they died from. They were both only four years old. I believe a demonic evil within the home murdered my dad's dogs.

Every thing I have said is true and not a stunt.

On the brighter side of things, my mom, who divorced my father 30 years ago lives in Arizona. She feeds these wild birds every day in her back yard by a stucco wall. The other day she noticed a face on the wall that looks to me like Jesus."


"I have had unexplained scratches, strange bruises, and possible burn marks. I have also had very fine, laser-straight parallel scratches under my right eye which disappeared within hours. I live in a clean house with no pets and shower every day. I'm not religious. All the marks clear up within a few days and do not hurt. I do dream about large demonic looking creatures (tall with gladiator-like human bodies and vile dog-like heads), but in the dreams I'm not afraid and find myself to be stronger and quicker and fend them off very easily. According to my partner I'm a heavy sleeper and a right git to wake up so I don't think the marks are self-inflicted. Some are right in the middle of my back where I couldn't reach. Maybe they're psychosomatic."


"I get these scratches when I'm awake..."


My brother Guy, my best friend Mindy, and me (Chrissy) were in my room the other day. We sat in a circle in the dark and held hands. Each of us said the words, 'On the first day of school I fell off my bike and got a scratch,' and so on seven times. We turned the lights on and checked our backs. Mindy had SEVEN red scratches lined up on her back. There was one scratch on my neck, two scratches on my right arm, and four on my left arm. My brother only had small ones. We took pictures of Mindy's. Mindy and I have scratches all over our bodies. One of Mindy's scratches left a scab. The one on my neck is very deep, deep enough to leave a rash. We don't have a very good relationship with Jesus Christ, so I don't know what to do...but I wear a cross. It helps me when I'm scared for some reason. I have a really bad feeling about this. Help. I have had weird experiences with these type of things before, such as screaming on my camera when I was making a video and nobody was at my house but me. And I've seen weird things in Mindy's room but i won't get into details because nobody believes me. I don't know what to do and I'm scared to be alone in my room."

How Can I Explain These Mysterious Scratches on My Body?

For several years, my family and I have experienced three scratches appearing mysteriously onto our bodies. During those afflicted years we were disregarding God and all He stood for. We were living for ourselves, using drugs, and living the "rock star" lifestyle.

While the scratches on their own were weird, what drove our suspicion was the fact that they appeared in patterns. Sometimes there were three cat-like scratch marks, just deep enough to see red, but not deep enough to draw blood. Sometimes there was one horizontal line with two vertical lines crossing the center. They would always burn then totally disappear a short time later, only to appear somewhere else on my body.

These were times drowned in confusion and chaos, so much so that the atmosphere seemed to get foggy or hazy. As these scratches appeared more and more, things became clearer. These mysterious scratches had a meaning, a purpose. They were meant to cause chaos, confusion and ultimately destroy us. In a nutshell: demons placed these marks on our bodies.

Unexplained Scratches Caused by Demons

I know, I know. It sounds crazy, and I agree. It is pretty amazing what really happens behind the scenes of humanity's existence. My family and I have been told that we are crazy too, but we know the truth. All we did was experience a phenomenon, and have decided to share our experience with others experiencing the same thing. Little did we know, it was happening to millions around the world!

The three parallel scratches are a symbol that means "Destroy." The target that is to be destroyed is us. God tells us that the devils go to and fro, seeking whom they may devour. The only answer to stopping is total surrender to Jesus Christ. How do we know? We called to Him, and even though we disregarded His ways, He answered. After several months of making the right decisions in life and becoming more aware and obedient to God's moral laws, we were set free! We are living proof that Jesus Christ is our helper and our Savior!

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: [1 Peter 5:8]

      I woke up with what looks like a symmetrical symbol scratch on my leg. My daughter is freaked out by this. We definitely have poltergeist activity and others have seen 2 full bodied aparitions. One is a man in very old style formal dress and the other is a little girl in a white dress and corkscrew pigtails. I refuse to be afraid and light sage whenever tension seems to be building in the house however if I have been marked by an entity I really want to know so I can deal with the situation appropriately. I didn't see an option to share photos. Any information is very much appreciated.

      You are being marked, and it is all for one reason.

      1 Timothy 6:12 tells us to FIGHT the good fight, and that fight is for your faith. Will you believe the lies literally scratched into you or will you lay hold of Eternal Life through Christ, our Lord!?? We choose the latter.

      Evil is a liar. Jesus Christ is Truth. He has also written something on you... it's in your heart.

      May God continue to bless your journey Home.

      I had a experience like these several times , waking up and looking at scratches ,it happened many times that I can't count and just took it like its normal , yes mostly its 3 lines or 4 ... I still can't explain it ... Have heard and seen strange things as well , for instance,one day saw a gigantic creature as tall as up to 20feets in my dream,looks like fucked up that I can't explain it and made a run for it but to my surprise as I was running , though it had long legs but he's not walking with them but yet approached like a movement controlled by winds... As I woke up , I was so scared in my bedroom and just a second or two seconds after, I heard a sound at the back of my room but my bible was so close to me and I picked it up and started shouting Jesus then the sound stopped ... I also remember that before that time, there was a day I was trying to sleep half carried away and then saw something very nasty looking. Dark in face blends with the night but the eyes are so big , looks feminine with long hair. Very big and gigantic. And trying to I think wrestle me down and strangle me but I kept using my hands to fight it and we struggled which lasted almost a minute. Then it was gone , and it later seemed like it is unreal but I know it is real but it made me think as if its a dream ... If I had told anyone I am sure they will never believe it but it happened and I an not insane. I also fly in mydreams without wings , I tried many times to control the flight but its not easy. Because sometimes I fly as high that I try to avoid power cables but I realised its very funny because I only step one. Two and up and am flying , looking at different people under who can't fly and some asking me teach us how to fly ... Its weird right ? Human nature has a lot hidden from us but it manifests to some of us in different ways. That was when I believed in Demons & Angels ... How about a very strange noise in the night about 2am? that sounds soo scary ... It has also happened once and I heard it as if its from the next house but the following. Morning , I aasked everyone in the neighbourhood what strange noise and was that and they all said they heard nothing ... That has happened once as well ... So what do you say to that ... ? That's what life is all about sometimes ... But as for the marks, my question is I hope the devil is not marking some people ? Its hard ... Let's hear another persons view ...

      I think maybe the reason you woke up with scratches is because you were on drugs, as you admitted in this article. Drugs will make you sleep walk, and do things unconsciously.

      I've been living in the same apartment for almost three years and honestly, I'm just now noticing these healed scratches. Sometimes I'll just feel my skin and find a scratch that happened out of nowhere. I always get a feeling like I'm being watched too, especially at night. And then there are times where things in my room will move. Or stuff disappears for a while and I find it sometime later.

      My girlfriend was attached by something last night and lt left about 30 or 40 scratch marks on her body. They almost were all in three's. Also i saw a symbol scratched into her shoulder. I saw them appearing on her body as she began hyperventilating from fear. It looked like a horror movie. I will be contacting a catholic priest and seeing if holy water and blessed rosaries. I have noticed scratches here and there in my life but nothing this violent. If i would have taken her to a hospital, they would have asked what she was attacked by. Yelling out loud seemed to make it stop. I hope this does not happen to anyone else. It was like a nightmare.

      Jay mate I know I haven’t been scratched yet and I believe you, demons heaven angles they all exist. Having two scratches on your right arm is going to hurt when you notice it. But what happens to you if that didn’t happen? Leave comment. What happens if an angles came? What would they do? Would they give us good luck for the rest of the year you know I don’t know alright so yeah mate? Also having a nightmare might wake you up in the middle of the night. Jay mate i feel really bad for you and I hope it doesn’t happen again so see you Jay.

      Just finished brushing my teeth and washing my face, and when I looked in the mirror I noticed 2 huge scratch lines and several small ones on the back of my right arm.I wish I can post a picture of them here, but trust me, I'm not lying. One I can understand me doing by mistake, but not this.

      It's not the first time, but they were never this big or this scary. I'm a born again Christian btw, but I've become far...far away from Christ.

      I really need to re-examine my life.

      Ive had the three horizonal ones once or so. My stepsons mom put them on him as i watched. After she left i changed his diaper. Everywhere she had touched there were scratches. But not human. Too small. Also my brother got out of prison and held my 6 mo old for first time. The baby visibly changed before our eyes. He would slam head into tile floor blacking his eyes. He is now adhd. He wasnt before. I and my brother had something happen as kids that changed us too. How do we protect ourselves. We plead the blood of jesus giving glory paise to god

      I've been waking up with the occasional scratch and sometimes a bruise, but the problem is I do not bruise easily nor are the bruises in places that I could easily hurt. These odd bruises and scratches have also been appearing a lot recently this past week. I've gotten a three small finger size bruises on my right bicep, a scratch on my left calf, a bruise with a pretty small scratch on the middle of my back which is almost impossible to reach much less bruise and scratch, and as I was sitting and watching Tv I look at my right bicep and sure enough another small finger sized bruise had appeared.

      I have had strange things happen to me before and I have a weird fear of my closet and bathroom I always feel like I'm being watched even if my closet is closed. As a kid orbs would appear in some photographs, I saw figures even at one point I even followed one, I occasionally hear whispers, I have heared and seen things fall in my kitchen for no apparent reason, and I use to have pretty bad nightmares so did my sibling. I don't know whats going on, but a friend's mom is offering to burn sage in the house to get rid of it. I don't even believe in this stuff all that much.

      Just yesterday upon waking up I notice a few scratches on my neck one of them appearing to be the letter M then other F. I have no answer i notice the marks right after my shower. Water burn across my neck. There starting to disappear now. I have no clue if i had done this or something else.

      My fiance sleep has been wacky for the past few days. He has nightmares and says babe watch out there someone there. I get up turn the lights on and see nothing.. I think its been a long time event. Few months ago i waken up to having a bite mark. Or other letter m. Unexplained bruises too. I sound crazy atm. Not knowing what the causes. My animal's my dogs and cats have been fine. There not acting strange. Been mediating and writing what i hear. Few i heard dont tell haha are scared.

      Im not sure if it is paranormal and toying with us.

      Or just mind games. My fiance even broke out with hives out of no where before. We are ignoring it. And going to cleanse the apartment. Mind you been living in the same apartment for 7 years.

      Just a couple days ago, I noticed a scratch across my chest just below my neck, I shrugged it off as my cat, but she hardly ever sleeps with me. Just after I got very very sick, I can hardly get out of bed. Just today I woke up with I scratch underneath my right breast. I wear clothes when I sleep so I know it's not my cat. This worries me because I just relapsed with self harm and I have an eating disorder. I'm worried that it could possibly be a demon that's trying to make me weaker and make me break down more and more, my depression only became worse once this started happening. Anyone have any thoughts?

The scabs are very red, like bloody so they are probably new. I am very scared. I live with 6 other people and nobody else has been experiencing this. I have also previously woken up with random bruises, that I don't remember having. Please help?

      A few days ago I woke up with a semi circled shaped scratch on my stomach, I didn’t think anything of it but then I realised my cats where at another house... the following few mornings I’ve kept waking up with scratches all over my body, neck was a long line, my right leg, both curved and my foot, (I wear socks to bed) so I’m freaking out, they’re all deep enough to show red, but I don’t think any have bled. It’s really creeping me out due to a paranormal experience a few nights ago that my parents had.

My hand started to itch while in spanish class and i looked down at my hand to these tiny scars. I know it wasn’t me because i barely even have nails and they’re definitely not sharp. Can someone explain this? thanks.

      I am also searching for answer.I found two scratches on my left arm, one on my upper left arm and one on my lower left arm. I do I did not scratch my arms at work and with all the winter stuff I am wearing to keep work is no way something external can scratch me without damaging the stuff I was wearing. interestingly, both scratches are about 3 04 4 inches a part, but they are inline and seem to me following the same blood vain. 3 days now and it seem to be healing.

      Anyone experiencing supernatural things at night you don't like, put a bible under your mattress or under your pillow and ask for protection. I promise if you truly ask for help it works.

      I've had paranormal experiences in my past mostly happening at my grandmothers house. I was scared one night and went to sleep in her bed one night. I was awakened by something i looked up from my pillow to see a creature jump over her and scare me. It kind of looked like a gremlin. I'm 31 now and this happened almost 20 years ago i still have this memory. Now having said that, within the past 10 years I've had random scratches show up on my abdomen once in awhile always 3 no more no less. I am not suicidal and do not put myself in situations in which i can inflict harm to myself. In the past couple weeks I've been having a tough time with my emotions been stressed out from the holidays and in a fit of sadness i did say out loud that i wanted to kill myself in front of my fiance. Since then, I've gone to bed and woken up in the living room which is a side effect of sleep drunkeness and also have seen three scratches on my collar and abdomen just recently today. I'm very nervous about what is going on and could use some feedback and/or suggestions on how to deal with this.

There is no pattern, and I have a cat that likes to knead on me during the night, but the scratches are in a spot he cant get to.

      I've noticed that in the past year I've had small but visible scratches on my upper chest close to shoulder and on my torso sometimes on my thighs. I don't have long nails and when they do grow I cut them up because they snag on my clothes and end up getting jagged. Its rarely in 3s its usually one long scratch they aren't painful nor do they burn but I find it strange.

I thought my son, Robert, kept letting the cat into my room, letting him scratch me! I now know that this is the work of demons! Satan! Thank goodness I am a woman of the lord, going to church every sunday. Hopefully these pesky demons leave me alone!

      Hi. I'm a male born in Portugal. I lived in England some time and came back to my country 4 years ago. When I turned 18 some strange things started to happen with me. I'm now 28. I began to hear voices after a strange incident with my cousin. I prefer not to talk about the incident so I'll move on to what is happening ever since. The way I hear these voices is weird. Is like they are inside my head. Like communication using thoughts. I usually reply to them in my thoughts as well and they can hear me because they reply. I don't remember hearing voices when I was a kid. Other weird thing is that sometimes my body moves and I'm not doing it. Like for an instance my hands and arms. It's like they are being controlled. I learned to live with this and to be honest I wouldn't see myself living without it anymore (hearing voices). It's like a part of me now. But I really would like to know why this started to happen. I tried asking these voices but I get different answers so I really don't know. I'm also careful when speaking with them because I know some of them do not have good intentions. I don't know who or what they are. Moving on. Several years ago, in England, I started to have weird dreams. I could write a lot about the dreams but I'll resume. Most of the dreams are about me leaving earth and meeting with blueish beings( I remember seeing earth in the distance); global catastrophes; Going to a spaceship and meeting greenish man (they look like man but it looks like they have scale or something). The dreams started in England, London 2012. I started to have dreams where I know I'm dreaming and I can make decisions. I must say that this sensation is very good. After falling asleep I also started to see my body in bed and then I could go anywhere. One day, 2013 Portugal, I had this dream that I remember very clearly. I saw my body in bed and it was very dark in the house. I heard noises coming from outside, in the building. I went out and went to the stairs (I was living on the 6th floor) to see what was causing the noise downstairs. I saw a grey bald man swallowing a baby. He sensed my presence, looked at me and I ran, of course, fearing that he would come for me. I woke up right after entering the house. Nowadays, right before falling asleep, I can hear a male voice but different from the others. Is strong, deep. I get chills when I hear this voice. He has asked me if I can hear him well. Just that for now. I ask him who he is but I get no reply and then I fall asleep little after. The voices started 10 years ago but from time to time I also see figures and shapes, some are dark others are like a ball of light that passes very fast. Sometimes I also see faces of people I never saw before when I close my eyes. Last year I was affected by this weird anxiety problem. I started to take pills (xanax and victan) to control it. I'm now free from pills but last year was very bad for me. I was depressed and some weird things started to happen. I felt like someone was hitting me but I couldn't see them. This passed. I'm now living alone again (last time was in Englad 2011-2013) and I'm having weird dreams and hearing this deep voice ever since I rented this new apartment. Before hearing the voice I hear a weird sound. Is like a endless ''biiiiiiiiiiiii'' that fades. Today I woke up with a mark on my chest. A little wound, heart-shaped. It does not hurt but I would like to know how it got here. I don't remember dreaming today, which is weird as I always remember at least something. Any of you experiencing things like this? I don't read much and I work a lot but I searched for strange marks on body when I saw my wound and got here. I'm not religious, I don't believe in a God that created all things. I do believe in energies. I'll try to decipher what this new deep voice wants. All the best

      I've been so confused about these scratches that mysteriously appear mostly on my back. The scratches, usually appearing three at a time, and 1 to 2 inches long, form scabs and that's when I discover them. It's bewildering and startling when these things show up out of nowhere. Prior to them appearing, and usually on the same day I actually feel a negative presence trying to get at me, like "scratching" to get inside and I feel very annoyed and agitated. I always stop and pray and ask Jesus to bind the bad spirit and protect me and my house and family. This has been happening for over two years when I moved to Arizona. Thanks for sharing; now I know I'm not going kookoo!

      I just one day noticed 3 straight scratches on my back, they're a finger length long and look like a big animal like a bear scratched me... They look like they have only just happened or only just started healing as they are red and are raised off my skin as skratches do.. it doesn't appear that they are going to heal any time soon...or ever

      It makes me concerned to read that "finding Jesus" was the only way to stop this strange occurrence as I am atheist and not matter how much I want to, I simply can not make myself believe in a higher power

All of a sudden my armpit area started to itch and look and found these markings that have hives and itching bumbs raised where the scratch marks are. It's a burning itching feeling and too thin to be by my nails and tried to scratch my self to compare and wasn't the same look at all.

I have a dog but he was down stairs all night and all the doors were closed. I don't want to say anything to my parents coz they will think I'm crazy but I really think something paranormal has happened to me. Every since we moved to this new house (just over a year ago) I knew something wasn't 100% right like at night I'd hear creaky floor boards that only ever creaked when you stepped on them!! I'm really scared and would love and explaination

      My opinion: Demons are real! That also makes Christ real. Seriously if You are having problems in any way ,Prayer to Christ can fix anything! If You dont know how to pray literally out loud say, yell depending on your mood. Ask that The Holy Spirit to protect you. Remember the devil cant read your thoughts. CHRIST CAN. So if you want a demon to leave you alone you must with an assertive voice out loud say "Demon by the POWER OF JESUS CHRIST, AND THE HOLY SPIRIT I COMMAND YOU TO LEAVE MY HOME, YOU HAVE NO POWER THAT COMPARES TO THE HOLY SPIRIT. " NOTHING IN THIS WORLD HAS POWER LIKE CHRIST, AND THE HOLY SPIRIT IS CHRIST'S ENFORCER. Give your heart and soul to Christ . Remember hell was not created for humans. Christ want s you to be in heaven , He loves You far beyond our ability to understand.

      When I was about two years old I started talking to things my parents thought it was and imaginary friend but soon figured out it was the old man that was murdered in my room the year I was born. After a while it was fine I just thought that maybe I was special so I went on with my life and after 12 years of this we moved to New Zealand and I started to become negative and aggressive and really angry and I felt like I was a possessed demon and now I can't sleep because it feels like someone or something is watching me, touching me, breathing on me. And a week ago a demon appeared to me in my sleep he told me to scream and for some reason I did. I would clean up my room than the next morning it is a mess. And I would wake up with 6 not 3, but 6 scratches on my arm that feels like I am being branded. I can't talk to my parents cause they don't understand, this is freaking me out and I don't know what to do I need answers Please.

      I woke up this morning and when into the bathroom when I saw red on my back and I turned around to see in the mirror and I have 3 scratch marks running on my back, I had very sexually active dreams last night. I read up on it and it says that the demons love to give sexual pleasure but implant a seed to commit bad sin and turning your faith away from God. It will choke, make you not able to move during sleep, leave scratches, bite marks and many more demonic symbols! Becareful and get right with God; repent and get on the right path you should be on. God bless
